Christopher McQuarrie: ‘Focus Entirely on Execution and Not on Result’

[2019-10-26 15:18:54]

Christopher McQuarrie: After twenty five years in the craft, I’ve learned the secret to making movies is making movies — starting with little movies no one will ever see. The secret to knowledge is doing and failing — often and painfully — and letting everyone see. The secret to success is doing what you love, whether or not you’re being paid. The secret to a rewarding career in film (and many other fields) is focusing entirely on execution and not on result. McQuarrie is writing from the field he knows best — movies — but I really do believe this advice is universal. You want to be a writer? Write. You want to make apps? Create apps.
